Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift & Reduction in Palm Beach
Often seen as symbols of femininity, a woman’s breasts can affect how she feels about her body. Some women are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Others are concerned about the loss of volume and firmness. Those with larger breasts may suffer from physical or emotional troubles. Even men can feel distressed about their chest, especially if they experience breast enlargement as a result of gynecomastia. Fortunately, there is a remedy for all of these concerns. Dr. David Rankin offers patients a variety of procedures for the breasts, including breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, breast lift, breast reduction, and male breast reduction.
There are many reasons why a woman may consider breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement. She may want breasts that are more proportionate to her figure, or she may simply desire a more curvaceous physique. Regardless of the reason a woman is interested in having larger breasts, the surgeon she selects must be well-qualified to perform the procedure. Dr. Rankin is a highly trained surgeon who delivers consistently beautiful results.
Dr Rankin offers his patients both Silicone and Saline breast implants. Dr. Rankin is one of the only Plastic Surgeons in Florida offering the transaxillary endoscopic technique, one of the most advanced methods of breast augmentation. This technique involves placing the incision in the armpit, where it is most easily concealed, and inserting the implant into it’s proper position with the use of a small camera called and endoscope. This is the best method for women who do not want a scar on their breast. Implant placement is highly precise due to the endoscope and the armpit scar is almost imperceptible at about one year. Of course Dr. Rankin regularly performs traditional breast augmentation incisions including the periareolar (around the areola) and the inframammary (under the breast) technique. The choice of incision will depend on each patients individual consultation and desires.
A breast lift is designed to help women whose breasts have begun to droop or sag after pregnancy, weight loss, or as a result of the aging process. Whether or not it is performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation to restore lost volume, a breast lift typically involves the removal of excess skin and the relocation of the nipple to a higher, more natural-looking position. The results are higher, rounder, and perkier breasts. Dr. Rankin uses the most advanced techniques in breast lifting to limit scarring while lifting the breasts.
Sometimes, having large, heavy breasts can cause a woman to develop neck and back pain, and other medical problems. Women who feel self-conscious because of their large breasts can also have difficulty with exercise. To help women who suffer physical distress as a result of having large breasts, Dr. Rankin performs breast reduction surgery which can often be covered through insurance.
